HUNGER ACTION MONTH
There are lots of ways to fight hunger in your community. Here are three specific ways to partner with COM in September.
COM is sponsoring our 2nd annual Can-struction Contest. Gather a team (your church, business, class, family, etc.) and collect canned good and non-perishable food. Then use those items to create a sculpture at a location of your choosing. We'll come by Sept. 22-25 to judge your sculpture. The winning team receives free pizza party! After the contest, we'll collect all the food items for our pantry. A great way to support your community and have fun all at once!
Teams must register before Sept. 21 to be eligible. Registration and rules can be found here.
COM is selling custom-made "Hunger Hero" orange t-shirts for Hunger Action Month 2020. Made by Creator Designs, these shirts are a great way to raise awareness during Hunger Action Month and to support COM's food pantry. Shirts are just $20 and the proceeds go straight to COM. You can pick up your shirt at our thrift store (Compassion Thrift) or place an order right here online. Shirts will not be available for pickup until Sept. 2.
Thursday, Sept. 10 is Go Orange Day. Wear Orange to show your support for COM and the fight against hunger. You can also purchase a 2020 Hunger Action Month t-shirt that will support COM's food pantry. Go Orange Day is also a great day to volunteer in the food pantry.
